Breasts and Letters

Artist Ed Stross faces a 30-day stint in jail unless the American Civil Liberties Union manages to overturn his conviction for painting the word "love" on his mural in this Detroit suburb.

Stross's long-running dispute with local officials is over his addition of the word to his mural in 1997 in memory of Princess Diana. The painting on the building housing his studio is based on Michelangelo's Creation of Man.

Roseville, Mich., officials say using letters in the mural violates a sign ordinance.

They also objected to Eve's bare breast in the painting.
